Expedition Vehicles and Overland Trucks
The trucks used by Absolut Tours & Safaris are mainly expedition vehicles, specifically designed for African roads and terrains.
Through our many years of experience in this area, we customise each vehicle in our workshop to ensure that our clients experience maximum comfort during their journey. Of particular importance to us is that every vehicle have large windows to ensure an expansive view from every seat. In addition, the vehicles are fitted with modern and comfortable seats, as one is accustomed to in Europe. Naturally, each vehicle is fitted with an on-board kitchen, including fridge, air-conditioning, and ample dust-free storage space.
Our trucks are all inspected for compliance with the highest possible standards set by the South African board of road-worthiness and vehicle safety. Every vehicle is routinely checked to ensure it is up to standard with environment and safety certificate prerequisites.
We mainly use our trucks on some of our Namibian routes.
We have a large fleet of IVECO minibuses and MERCEDES Sprinter, built to the high standards of Absolut design. These small buses carry 15 passengers in comfort, with air-conditioning, opening windows, and a luggage trailer.
These vehicles are mainly used in South Africa where the road conditions are of good quality.
Our Expeditions Buses are specifically tailor-made for Namibia’s road conditions. The buses have 30 newly constructed seats which offer our guests more comfort as they can be moved sideways thus allowing for more space. The big windows can be opened widely and therefore making photographing easier. To optimize the comfort during the tours they also have 2 air-conditions and a big refrigerator in the back.
It’s becoming more and more popular to travel the world on a bicycle. It’s a lot easier to slow down, breathe, and immerse yourself in a foreign country in a more active and fulfilling way. We have Kalkhoff Trekking bicycles in our fleet, which can be used either as the only mode of transport or just for a few parts of the journey.
